Abstract:

Annotation

In this pioneering work, Gustavus Myers lays bare the corruption, swindling, land deals, and bribery that are at the basis of Canadian history. This is Canada's past seen through the eyes of a muckraker, and in it the heros of other histories appear in quite a different light. <br><br>This book was first published in 1914--in the United States. It has never before been published in Canada. Canadian historians have mostly ignored, suppressed, or mocked it. But history is not the preserve of apologists for big business and the political parties, and <i>A History of Canadian Wealth</i>is certain to be widely read and recognized at last as a classic.<br><br>A landmark revisionist history of Canada, <i>A History of Canadian Wealth</i>remains as lively and startling as it was when first published.
